.2 Rescuing an Install  
Insteadoftotallytrashingyoursystem,though,andhavingtoreinstall,ifyou’ve  
onlyscreweduppartofit(likeLILO,forexample),youcanrescueit. Ironically,  
I’d only ever before done this with KNOPPIX(which is great, that’s just not  
itspurpose)! TurnsouttheDebianCDfromwhichyouinstalledworksjustas  
well.  
If you want to rescue your install, but bypass your kernel loading and use  
thestockone,youcantype:  
rescue root=/dev/hdaX video=vga16:off  
at the prompt instead of just hitting ENTER. This will use the stock kernel  
onthedisctobootup yourinstall,ifit’srescue-able. (Don’tforgetthevideo  
option!)  
If you don’t even want your filesystem mounted (in order to convert it to  
ext3, or something) you can hit ENTER at the first screen (loads the image  
linux’), and then when the big blue welcome screen pops up, switch to tty2  
CTRL+ALT+F2). Thisisasmallshell,ash,withoutanybigeditors,andwith  
only a few commands (to see which, as it says, do a ‘ls /sbin /usr/sbin‘  
andmore;Iforget)). Unfortunatelyforme,thereisnoloadkeys(I’maDvorak
